Assessment Rehabilitation Services Inc. and Managed Disability Resources Inc. Strategic Partnership

November 11, 2009 – Assessment Rehabilitation Services Inc. (A.R.S.) is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Managed Disability Resources Inc. (M.D.R.) effective December 1st, 2009.

A.R.S. is a nationally established, industry-recognized provider of vocational rehabilitation and occupational medicine and solutions in Canada. Established in 1999, ARS has grown to be a steady and prominent pillar in the insurance community with experience in the Health, Disability and Casualty Insurance industries, Workers Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) and employer market sector.

M.D.R. is a national claims management organization focusing on accurate, timely and cost effective structure and management of short and long-term disability claims. Realizing that there is a cost to absence, M.D.R. works hard to limit that cost through effective claim management.

Soula Pereira, President of A.R.S. states: “A.R.S. is delighted to partner with MDR to bring valuable, price sensitive medical and disability management strategies to employer groups. MDR’s disability management offering is unique and unmatched in the insurance industry and we look forward to a long and successful relationship”.

As John Warren, Executive Vice-President of MDR says….”We are impressed by the high standards and capabilities of ARS. We share a common goal of getting valued people back to work and keeping them there in a timely cost effective manner.”

Together, A.R.S. and M.D.R. offer a full range of medical assessment and claims management services to our client groups nationally. A.R.S. and M.D.R. operate in both official languages and are able to service clients on a national basis.

Effective claims management, return to work and medical assessment functions are an integral part of a successful disability program. A.R.S. and M.D.R. are able to guide employers successfully through this process.
